Via advice from others, I can confirm that if I unplug my second monitor (I run a Gsync Acer Predator XB271HU monitor and a dell ultra sharp not that the models matter I’m sure), restart the machine, and launch BF V Gsync works without issue. And I can exit the game, plug second monitor back in, and relaunch with it working as well. Haven’t tried to really see what causes it to break further yet. Got a smokin deal on a 8700k and am testing a 5.0 GHz OC at the moment... takes priority over stupid Gsync issues 😂
It seems like I can only get gsync to work in DX11 mode which seems to be ~30% less FPS than DX12, or in windowed mode. DX12 full screen results in my monitor refreshing at whatever the setting is in the advanced video settings, 2560x1440 165 FPS locks my Hz in at 165, if I set it to 144 my monitor reports 144 etc. Its like this setting is breaking gsync while in DX12.
I have done DDU twice, installed new drivers twice as well, once with newest drivers (417.22), one with last version (417.01), and installed the October 2.0 windows update in case that had a possible fix with some underlying windows DX12 issue. So far nothing.
Anyone have any ideas or possible fixes? Sorta not stoked about this, especially since I could really use Gsync as my CPU is a bit dated and can't push insane FPS anymore.
I have another PC at my apt (this is at my parents house where I visit from time to time) which has a similar just better setup, and that doesn't seem to have an issue... 6700k @ 4.6, GTX 1080 @ 1199, Ultrawide Predator 3440x1440 whatever model that guy is, I am blanking.
No idea what is causing this, as I am fairly certain my 6700k rig doesn't have the problem, although I am not there at the moment to validate it.
